   It is obvious that we can not get along and it is not my fault. I
discovered yesterday I was getting 2 copies of every message sent to
this list. It is not nice. When I got it figured out it is someone on
this list who is doing it to ME, I decided to find out, how hard is this
to do? In short order I discovered you can cause this to happen if your
using Thunderbird.

   As for get along I am in favor of that. I only react when I have
been fouled. And many of the so-called experts here get great pleasure
from hurting me.


Gmail filters can also be configured to forward emails to another address.
There is a "Forward to" field in there. A wrongly configured filter could be a problem.
